ENTERTAINMENT BITS: Nas' Fan-Made Video "Represent" + Drake ANNOUNCES New Album + Fat Joe MAKES A PLAY At The All-Star Celebrity Softball Game
In entertainment, Nas released a fan-made video for the Illmatic classic "Represent" while Drake announced his fourth album. Get deets inside and watch Fat Joe in the celebrity All-Star baseball game.
Nas celebrated the 20th anniversary of his iconic debut album Illmatic with a contest (via his own Mass Appeal mag) that gave an aspiring director the chance to produce the official music video for his classic “Represent.” Director Brian Katz walked away the winner and now we have his long-awaited music video made for “Represent.” He said the black-and-white visual was inspired by the soundtrack to the 1924 silent film, The Thief of Bagdad, which DJ Premier sampled on the song.
“As someone who has had Illmatic in heavy rotation for the past 20 years, the opportunity to represent as a true fan in sharing my vision with Nas and have Jason Goldwatch help bring that vision to reality is proof positive that indeed ‘The World Is Yours.’”
